Week 7

This Wednesday, in class, I accomplished learning D, Eb and F.

This week I discovered that the fingerings don't change very much for these three notes.

Problems that came up this week were remembering the fingerings.

Next Wednesday I am going to learn some songs.

      This Wednesday, in class, I accomplished helping Orion with his project because Alina was absent that day.

      This week I learned that Orion has changed his project to learning the trombone.

Week 4

      This Wednesday, in class, I accomplished learning the fingerings of D and E flat and put the flute together.

      This week in class I learned the fingerings for D and E flat.

      Problems that came up this week were putting my fingers in the right places and pressing down the right keys.

      Next week in class I am going to put the flute together and probably learn more fingerings.

Week 2 Project Change

      I have changed my project. Here are the mandatory questions:

1. Who are the people in your group?
     There are only two people in my group, including myself. The other person is Alina Villa.

2. Briefly describe your project & the roles of each person.
     I will be learning the flute my job is to learn and to listen to Alina who will be teaching me.

3. Describe in as much detail as possible how you will use your 13 Wednesdays class periods.
      I will be learning the fundamentals of flute like embouchure and fingerings. Alina will be in charge of what we do during the class periods.

4. Explain why you chose to do this project.
      I chose this project because I realized how difficult it would be to work at school. Also this will help expand my knowledge of music because I'll have to learn different embouchure, clef and fingerings.

Week 1

      This Wednesday, in class, I accomplished finding out how to get better software for producing the music.  This week I discovered what the best software was and how to get it. A problem that came up was the computers were running a little slow. Next week I am going to start making the music.
